KARL posted an article in Local NewsAfter controversially (See Salford Star Article Here) turning down planning permission in July 2018, Salford Council has today (Thursday, September 6 2018) finally approved plans for the multi-million pound Canon Green Campus development on Canon Green Drive in Trinity. Previously the Council had rejected the application with Councillors declaring that it was "Odd", "Wierd" and even "Bonkers" that the council would reject affordable housing in the area whilst at the same meeting giving Countryside Properties the green light for 299 private rent apartments more or less around the corner in Broughton. The good news is that finally the £22.5m project by Salford housing association Salix Homes will see ageing tower block Canon Green Court completely transformed and modernised, along with neighbouring apartment block Westminster House, which will undergo an external facelift. As part of the development, a brand new 11-storey apartment block will be built within the grounds of the expansive site, comprising of 108 one and two-bedroom affordable apartments. Lee Sugden, chief executive at Salix Homes, said: The refurbishment at Canon Green Court, which was built during the 1960s, includes new kitchens, bathrooms, heating systems, sprinkler systems and exterior re-facing and insulation. Salix Homes, which owns more than 8,000 homes across Salford, will now appoint a contractor to carry out the project and it’s hoped that work will start on site later this year.
Launched by Salford City Council the website shows people which benefits they are entitled to and helps them apply for them online or launch appeals. It brings together job adverts from several major online sites so people can apply directly and log their job search activities quickly and easily and even offers advice on childcare and energy grants. Councillor Paula Boshell, Deputy City Mayor at Salford City Council, said: Councillor Boshell said anyone who needs help to get online can get support through Salford City Council’s Digital You programme. In addition to the website, which was designed by Kirklees Council’s digital technology company and is being taken up by councils across the country, Salford City Council has introduced new scan zones at Gateway centres across the city. The new machines mean people can scan documents, such as those in support of benefits applications and attach them electronically to claims.

KARL posted an article in Local NewsSalford City Council is using new legislation, which was introduced in April this year, in a bid to keep the streets clean. The law now allows the council to fine the keeper of a vehicle £150 if it is has reason to believe any of its occupants have discarded litter.

Signs for both offences will be put up in prominent locations to warn potential offenders.
